You Are The Weakest Link

Remember this curt sharp-tongued lady named Anne Robinson, who was the host of the game show called “The Weakest Link”? Her catch phrase after anyone was eliminated was a very quick and unceremonious “You are the weakest link –  good-bye!”

I was thinking how great it would be in real life I was a super hero and I had the secret powers where I could get rid of someone who was not pulling their own weight by simply walking up to them and saying, “You are the weakest link – good-bye!” No further explanation would be needed.  Poof, they would be gone.

How tempting would that be? Hmmm, where would I start? Well today I would have used it on the waitress at the diner who served me a cold cup of coffee.

Me: Excuse me Miss

Diner Waitress: (irritated and smacking gum) What do you want?

Me: ( sweet as pie) Well it seems that you served me cold coffee. Can I get a fresh hot cup?

Diner Waitress: (shrugs shoulders) Whatever

Me: (annoyed at the whatever response ) Oh, and there’s one more thing.

Diner Waitress: (rolling eyes) What now?

Me: You are the weakest link –  good-bye!

POOF she is outta there!

Maybe as the Super Hero I would travel to Washington DC and do a little house cleaning! Poof they are outta there. Oops did I just say that out loud?

This super ability could also really come in handy when all of the relatives are around.

Me: Hey, how have you been? I haven’t seen you since our last family get together.

Generic Relative:  Well I’m doing Ok. You know, just hanging in there.

Me: So….have you found a job yet?

Generic Relative: No, the job markets sucks right now.

Me: yah, but it’s been like 11 years now since you’ve worked.

Generic Relative: No, it’s only been 10 I think.

Me: No, I’m pretty sure it’s 11. It was before the New Millennium. So where are you living these days?

Generic Relative: Oh, you know just couch surfing with friends.

Me: (shocked) oh!

Generic Relative: (in a whispered voice) Well between you and me, if Granny would just keel over I bet she’s leaving a bundle of dough for each of us! Then I wouldn’t ever have to worry about a job and I could score my own pad.

Me: You are the weakest link –  good bye!

POOF they are outta there!

Of course that was just a joke. I love all of my fun-loving loud Greek relatives and I would never have to employ my secret abilities on any of them. But I might need to use it on my manager Mr. Bricks.

Me: Good morning Mr. Bricks

Mr. Bricks: Hey Ava. What’s going on?

Me: You tell me Bricks. Do I have a record deal yet?

Mr. Bricks: No I am working on it.

Me: You are the weakest link –  good-bye!

POOF he is outta there!
